2020 Shuttle Service Schedule

Experience Wilmington’s Riverfront as you have never seen it before…from the water. Weary travelers can relax on a voyage that carries them on the tranquil waters of the Christina and Brandywine Rivers. Just sit back, relax and let the captain do the navigating while you enjoy rides up and down the river experiencing the many beautiful destinations Wilmington’s revitalized Riverfront has to offer. The River Taxi is a 29-passenger fun-filled, sun-filled way to take it all in. The taxi can be boarded from six docks located along the riverfront.

The River Taxi also offers special tours and chartered services such as The History Tour. The History Tour is a one-hour narrated tour that highlights Wilmington’s historical riverfront area.

Private Cruises & Groups

If you can imagine it, we can probably make it happen. Charter the river taxi for any group up to 29 people and we’ll help make your event memorable. Learn about the rich history of Wilmington’s Christina River, including WWII shipbuilding and the underground railroad; explore the river’s many natural wonders with a look at its habitat and wildlife; or simply relax and enjoy the ride.

River taxi cruises are perfect for birthday parties, employee team building exercises, business social gatherings, senior center excursions, youth or church group outings.

Cost to charter the boat for a cruise of up to 2 hours is $19 per person. Other services such as on-board entertainment, nature guide, and dockside reception can be arranged for an additional fee.
